    Ok<p>I want to say i am sorry for providing any wrong information.<p>Ok yes i guess i have pushed Diamond and Fisher plows a lot. The reason is simple, I live in the state they are built in. You guys living in NJ, MA, NY and other states have tons of industry. Only if Fisher or Diamond were to close down even know they don't employ a ton of people it would be major economic down turn to my fellow mainers. Maine has very little industry compared to the rest of the country, and like i have said before Diamond almost closed. I used to be a die hard Fisher man to 1995, then i went to Diamond it was because i wanted a good mounting system. Up to 95 i never had owned a Diamond always fisher. Anyways Diamond almost went under during the late 80s and early 90s, then Meyer saved them. I don't want to see the Fisher or Diamond plant close, i don't want to see my fellow Mainers out of work, even if i have never met them before. Maine is a small state, just a little over 1 million people, one area code for the whole state good old 207, how many other states are like that? That is the biggest reason for supporting Fisher and Diamond. <p>Again i am sorry if i have taken anyone down the wrong path. I do know that we all have a product that we believe in more than others Diamond just happens to be mine.<p>Geoff

    Hey Tru Cut, I also have a problem with spelling, When universal spell check is unavailable, (The Wife) I just cut and paste out of MS Word. It has spell check. And really works good<br>Geoff, You say what you like and that’s what its all about.<br>Troy<br>

    Geoff dont worry about that buddy. You have a product that works well and you want others to try it. Best of all it is made in your home state. Spread the word.<br>Now if I can just get you off that ford thing.(LOL)<br>Cudos to meyer for putting money into a real plow company.<br>And who knows where fisher or western would be with out Douglas Dyanmics buying them.<br>You are a good honest man who makes me laugh and think. Sharing isdeas and experience with out the bs.<br>That is what C Smith wanted for this forum to be about.<br>Dino<p>----------<br> Professional Ice and Snow Management <br>Products:Services:Equipment www.sima.org

    Geoff,<p>The organization is SIMA and the web site is www.sima.org. Teh www.sema.com is a interesting one i know for you because it is the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association and it deals with cars trucks and the like. It is a huge organization.<p>As was said before SIMA is great, contact Tammy and she'll get you all the information you want. I joined last year and will stay with this group forever.<p>Vince
